What better way to celebrate the glorious arrival of autumn than with family and friends and a complete New England-style clambake from Heinen's! To me, nothing says fall more than a clambake. It is just the perfect complement to the cooler weather and an excuse to throw a great party! It's not officially fall until I've hosted or been to a clambake.
Here's an interesting fact you can impress your party-goers with: Northeast Ohioans buy more clams in September and October than the entire country combined – I bet you didn't know clambakes were that popular around here!
Let's be honest – throwing a killer clambake can be a daunting task. That's where we come in. You can get everything you need at your neighborhood Heinen's, including clams, chicken, sweet corn, potatoes, bread and butter and steamer broth. We even include the silverware! If that's not enough, we also have an option that additionally includes lobster and mussels. Since it's Heinen's, you know you'll be getting the highest quality out there. So instead of spending all your time shopping for the necessary ingredients, you can spend more time with your friends and family, enjoying your clambake.
Is the thought of hosting your own clambake still a little scary? No worries, there are a lot of other ways you can enjoy clams this fall – including a simpler version of the clambake, a clam boil. Here's an easy-to-follow recipe and video from Chef Billy Parisi.
